Buffer and SQL trace does not exclude the defined tables in SAP 4.6C!?

Hi all,

I switched on a buffer and sql trace. I defined "UST12" as the table to be excluded. But when I listed the trace the table appeared many times in the column ObjectName.

The same situtation occurs with other tables like SXS_INTER etc.

I use SAP 4.6C.

Does anybody know if some table can not be exlcuded or how to solve this prob?

thanks in advance, holger

Hi Holger,

Did you give table name with double quotes . You just need to give UST12 . I tried and this worked on a 46C system .

Hi Holger ,

The exclusion works only on SQL trace and not on buffer trace . In our system UST12 was BYPASSING BUFFER . So you can restrict only if table is not buffered , or if the buffered table bypasses buffer in SQL.

the trace file is growing so fast (5 sec and it is full)and there are 3 buffered tables responsible for that...thus excluding is unpossible.

Do you have any other ideas, except increasing the profile size?

Is it possible to EXCLUDE a program. The F1 help only says that it is possible to include a program...?
